What if my affidavit is approved by the prosecutor?

If your affidavit is approved, it will be sent to the District Court Clerk’s Office to have a summons issued.  

 After a summons is issued, it will be given to the Jonesboro Police Department for service. The police will serve the defendant with a court date, at which they will plea to the criminal charge(s). The length of time this step takes varies and is dependent upon the difficulty of locating the defendant.
